Facebook: Walls With Imagination- Murals by Brian Turnbough

A lifelong resident of the Chicago suburbs, Brian Turnbough has been sculpting sand professionally at events and festivals worldwide for over 15 years. During that time, he has had the privilege to work with, and compete against many of the world’s best sand sculptors.

In 2011 and 2016, Brian took 1st place at the American Championships of Sand Sculpture in Ft. Myers Beach, and was awarded Sculptor’s Choice there in 2015. In 2013, Brian and his doubles sculpting partner, JOOheng Tan of Singapore, took 1st place in the doubles division at the World Championships of Sand Sculpture in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

In addition to sand sculpting, Brian creates murals and painted artwork for homes and businesses around the Chicago area through his business, Walls With Imagination.

Brian earned his degree in painting and drawing from Eastern Illinois University. He shares a home in Mokena, Illinois, with his wife, Brooke, and two sons, Adam and Elton. He splits his love for color and his love for form by sculpting and painting as often as possible.
